And the award for cutest commercial goes to...
Wiz Khalifa and his son, Sebastian, 5, star in a new commercial for OREO for its latest campaign, Stay Playful. The adorable spot shows Wiz and Sebastian playing in their home together and features an original song, "Playful 4 Life," that the rapper recorded specifically for the commercial.
"It’s really cool for me to work with my son in front of the camera because I feel like it’s something that he’s going to end up doing in life anyway, so the more experience that you gain and the more that it’s fun and it’s comfortable, you get good memories from it, he can go on for the rest of his life and do whatever he wants to and he won’t feel the same kind of anxiety that other people might feel," Wiz said of the commercial. "He’ll know exactly how to process roles and how to make it his as well which is really important."
For the rapper, the OREO commercial is simply a reflection of how he approaches parenting his only child and spotlights their fun dynamic with one another.
"My relationship with my son is really open. It’s really free. I allow him to be himself. That’s the main thing I just want him to experience and love life for what it really is to him. I’ve had my own experiences and things like that, so I think just knowing that he is my number one and that I can fall back and just let him be great, I think that’s the main thing that keeps him happy," Khalifa added of his son. "And for me, I just love him so much. He’s the most important thing to me ever, so I wouldn’t imagine any other way, but the fact that people are into it so much and it comes off so genuine and so loving and so inspiring, it helps out a lot too because not only do I enjoy it but other people enjoy it as well so it helps me to just keep going and also just try to figure out better ways and new ways to keep improving."
Wiz Khalifa shares his son with ex Amber Rose. He's currently dating Winnie Harlow.
